Most assists Premier League: 2020/21 season Playmaker Award

Published: 10:00, 24 November 2020

The Premier League is blessed with some of the best creators in the world and they will be fighting it out again in the 2020/21 season to win the Playmaker Award.

Kevin De Bruyne claimed the award for the third time in 2019/20, recording 20 assists over the campaign, equalling Thierry Henry’s record for the most in a single Premier League season.

It was a comfortable win in the end for De Bruyne – who was recently named the PFA Player of the Year – finishing seven assists clear of his closest rival, Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.

But Tottenham’s Harry Kane has launched himself into an early lead after helping himself to nine so far, topping his best ever return for a single season. Jack Grealish meanwhile has both raced into second after playing a major part in the shock 7-2 demolition of Liverpool earlier in the campaign.

Check back here throughout the season to see just how the race for the 2020/21 Premier League Playmaker Award pans out…
